  1. Past hour
  2. Bumping the thread due to some updates. Found a Facebook page for a company in SPM that does tours of the islands. They have actual European buses! One vehicle is an old Renault-Berliet from what appears to be 1970s-80s, while when I liked the page yesterday I discovered they managed to acquire a full-sized MAN Lion's Coach which seems to be their primary vehicle now, with the Renault most likely being a spare. Chances are with the green German enviro-sticker on the windshield, this vehicle could either be German or has travelled to Germany in her past life. I gotta wonder given alot of Saintpierreais travel to Newfoundland for shopping and medical appointments, whether SPM could in fact start a coach service as far as St. John's one day? Be really cool if they used a modern MAN, Mercedes or Scania for it?
  3. That's fair. But. To the average rider, Vancouver is confusing... First world problem to be sure, though.
  4. That's incorrect now... Perhaps maybe you have more info?
  5. As far as I know, that's the only standard for NA Enviro500 MMCs
  6. Cool. Another new standard in the fleet 😐
  7. There are incandescents on Maitland Avenue at Trinity United Church: https://www.google.com/maps/@45.3662542,-75.7510664,3a,75y,145.67h,79.08t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1st92s37nmgTIynJYfYTLIVg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  8. Um yeah! Big UH-OH! Can't wait too hear what happened there!
  9. 4419 has a shield installed as well
  10. Conversely, it also begs the question about whether they are now being lenient in order to try and pump up the metrics. And unfortunately in the absence of any actual data, we're all left wondering. Dan
  11. No, they're not. Even within the echo chamber of St. Laurent station, it's not loud. To be honest, I'm surprised that someone along Scott St. would hear one over all of the other ambient noises in the neighbourhood. Dan
  12. That’s odd because on the Freightliner S2 wiki page it doesn’t say anything about it being built on a Turtle Top
  13. I also got more information on retired Orion VII buses. 2668 is still active, and the following 2700s are active as of right now: 2703, 2706, 2712, 2713, 2717-2720, 2723, 2724, 2727, 2730
  14. No decommissioned streetcars at Russell Yard right now!
  15. Today
  16. So these things are super loud too? According to the posts below. https://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=203028&page=581
  17. OP-ED on Winter Performance of the Alstom Citadis Spririt trains. Let's finally put this debate to rest... will they run in the winter? We have no doubt they will and have no reason to think otherwise. "The biggest factor in winter performance will be the maintenance and proper cleaning of the tracks, not the vehicles." https://www.otrainfans.ca/news/op-ed...citadis-spirit
  18. The original Bus 711 was pilot bus but... there is replacement 711 heading its way to Honolulu right now. It's at the Docks of LA right now 16 hours ago. But what I'm still trying to figure out is where was the original bus 711 sold to after being auctioned off to to another transit agency????
  19. MVTArider

    Metro Transit

    Auctions closing in a few days FWIW. The two D60 are scrap: 3140 3149 7105 7106 7107 7108 7109
  20. Push bars are to the side as opposed to in the center.
  21. That begs the question of what was originally being considered a "failure" and should it ever have been considered a failure.
  22. Do the rear doors have push-bars or are they driver-operated?
  23. Here's the original thread. Some of the original poster's comments were deleted before they could be archived.
